[laughter] >> justice ginsburg, you have had an amazing career and are leading our legacy in the law. although there is still more to do, looking back, is there anything you would do differently? >> it is a question i do not ask myself, and i will give you two pieces of advice i was given in that regard. when i was a brand new judge on the d.c. circuit, one of my colleagues said, "ruth, i have been at this business a long time, and there is one thing i would like to impart. do your best in each case, but when it is over, when the opinion is out, do not look back. do not worry about things that have passed. go on to the next case and give it your all." that corresponds to advice that my mother gave me, which she summed it up in the phrase "be a lady," and by that she meant do not allow distracting commotions to overwh
to serve. he was an inspirational focus point for people like paul and i. we were kids, young men and women when president reagan piqued our interest. >> a lot of people think john boehner will retire in 2014. do you think paul ryan would be a good speaker of the house? >> he would be an exceptional leader, whatever he might be. paul ryan does great things. >> i am getting the hook. scott walker, thank you for being here. [applause] >> you will tag team out with a bill right now. notice to sue proved quick burst to see you. -- nice to see you. >> nice to see you. we are here in washington, governor sam brownback from kansas who is trying to make the trek from topeka. the weather has slowed him down. we will finish with you, governor. >> they have 10 inches of snow that had them. >> he has an excused absence. we will finish with you today. thank you for joining us. i have been talking to the other governors, the same issue. the federal impact of the states and what is happening in the states. heading towards march 1 is the sequester, automatic edger cuts will go into effect. you have fort ca
must be an expert in medicine. i would wonder why he assumes that he knows more than people like john or paul, the nobel prize winner in economics. and it seems to me that sequestration is more a blackmail issue. guest: again, sequestration was the mechanism used by the president, the white house, in order to get the bill passed that raised the debt limit in august 2011. if anyone's dealing with blackmail, i reference your call to the white house, please, because they were the ones who came up with this idea. the president thought it was a bad idea, had the ability to veet oh the bill in august 2011, but it was passed under his signature. he signed it and went on vacation, if you'll remember, went to his 50th birthday party, if i recall correctly. look, paul drugman and i probably disagree about almost everything except the call of day. host: the caller may have missed the introduction of you. er a doctor. give us a little bit of your background. guest: well, i am a physician. i went to the university of texas medical school at houston,graduated in 1977, did my residency in a obstetri
unless they got cuts, there would have lost that the raid at the end. big loss that debate. john boehner and paul rand did a great job together. you cannot govern from that office, you but you have to be very careful about high-profile last-minute negotiations. i've worked in the white house and three administrations. the president has a tremendous institutional advantage in these kinds of fights. what republicans have to do is avoid these fights, the straps that they are laying. provide an alternative through passing legislation, just to show this is how they would govern if they had the powers of the presidency and the senate. and be careful. there are some rough edges. host: some are not strategy as far as moving the debt ceiling ahead. guest: if they had gone ahead with it, it would have been politically cataclysmic. it was the worst percival -- worst possible ground to make their point. president obama 1. i think it's absolutely crucial for the future of the country that you cannot govern from the house. some house republicans, i am sympathetic to their concerns. their enthusiasm tr
campaign from mitt romney and paul rand that there are all these tax breaks and loopholes that disproportionately benefit very wealthy people. speaker john boehner said he could come up with $800 billion through a tax reform plan. we're simply saying to the house republicans that we want to do with speaker john boehner said he could do. use some of their revenue from closing loopholes to close the deposit. you are right. republicans so far have said they're not willing to close one tax loophole, not for a corporate jet for big tax -- big oil companies for the purpose of reducing the deficit. when it is that trade-off, are they more interested in protecting the economy and defense spending? then i think he will begin to see a little bit of a change in attitude. >> what is there is not a change in attitude and calculations? this deadline is different than previous ones. we were facing the prospect of a default. it was a stone wall. we could not afford to hit it. where were facing taxes immediately going up. it was a pretty hard stonewall we could not afford to hit. this time

emanating from china. our guest this john reed. a discussion of saving for retirement with paul taylor. live every day at 7:00 eastern on c-span. >> i think it's a pretty accurate that they do not live by the roles of both cases. i think they bend the rules to fit their circumstances. i think americans at all westerners tend to be a lot more legalistic and the things that we went in subcontract. once we see things are written on a contract, that is the be all and all. chinese will sign any contract or agree to any trade agreement and after the ink is dry they would try to figure out how to get around the requirements. it is just a relentless drive to get a head. it is what has built the place over the last 30 years. this relentless drive to get a head and to get better and to improve. they see some of the restrictions we put on them in terms of trade. they see that as we are trying to hold china down. we basically operated in a world without rules for years to build our economy up another we are up to the top are try to hamstring them or tie them up with rules and regulations to hold china d

and racism take over this country, that the protected against john mccain and sarah palin and protected us against romney and ron paul. so i pray to god that people stop and think about what is really motivating this country with hatred and racism and deception. but the state of the union is great. it helps you understand what's going on and stop and thing about what's going on. thank you and have a great day. and to belittle 12-year-olds, keep it up, son.- host: on twitter -- here is some history, state of the union facts. here is a question usa today" is asking-- eddie in texas, independent. caller: i think the state of the union is pretty bad right now. i don't think the president will say that. host: how much does the speech matter to you? do you pay attention to what the president says during this address? caller: yes, i do pay attention. i think everybody should pay attention. host: do you think they are a highlight of the political year, the message that comes out of the white house? caller: yes, it is hopes and wishes for the country and once he has done in the past. host: reginald
